  • Describes the processes of ecohydrology, permafrost hydrology, meteorology, and climatology in the context of water, energy, and carbon exchanges in the Arctic circumpolar region of eastern Siberia
  • Discusses the unique water and carbon cycle system in the permafrost region in eastern Siberia, which is not seen in non-permafrost regions (tropical and mid-latitude regions)
  • Highlights water-carbon dynamics influenced by the changing permafrost environment in recent decades

About this book

This book discusses the water and carbon cycle system in the permafrost region of eastern Siberia, Providing vitalin sights into how climate change has affected the permafrost environment in recent decades. It analyzes the relationships between precipitation and evapotranspiration, gross primary production and runoff in the permafrost regions, which differ from those intropical and temperate forests.  

Eastern Siberia is located in the easternmost part of the Eurasian continent, and the land surface with underlying permafrost has developed over a period of seventy thousand years. The permafrost ecosystem has specific hydrological and meteorological characteristics in terms of the water and carbon dynamics, and the current global warming and resulting changes in the permafrost environment are serious issues in the high-latitude regions.  

The book is a valuable resource for students, researchers and professionals interested in forest meteorology and hydrology, forest ecology, and boreal vegetation, as well as the impact of climate change and water-carbon cycles in permafrost and non-permafrost regions.
